Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal. Her father's "unconventional" business has meant a life of tightly held secrets, concealed weaponry, and a strict code. But Lily's crime isn't being the daughter of a powerful mob boss. Her guilt lies in the other half of her DNA -- the part that can coax ancient rumors from stones and summon fire with a thought. Lily is part fae, which is a crime in her world. From the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humanity and fae. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of both the Seelie and Unseelie courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir -- a death that was the fault of reckless humans. Lily's father has shielded her from the repercussions of her ancestry... until she is sent to the prestigious St. Columba's school, straight into the arms of the Black Diamonds. Mysterious, glamorous, and bound together in their mission but constantly at odds, Zephyr, Creed, Will, Roan, Violet, and Alkamy are a Sleeper cell of fae, planted in the human world to help destroy it from within. With covers as rock stars and celebrity children, the Black Diamonds carry out the queen's war against humanity. And unbeknownst to Lilywhite, she's been chosen to join them. Now more than ever, Lily's heritage puts her in peril, and even the romantic attention of the fae singer Creed Morrison isn't enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the safer world of organized crime.

Insta-love, unoriginal concepts of fairies, and scarcely-explained history, oh my!

The start was really strange, but it got much better afterwards. the ending was a bit rushed, but pretty good. I think marr had some pretty good ideas, and combined them very well in this book

After the first 100 pages the book began to get more exciting. The ending came out good however

I hated the start, disliked the middle, and liked the ending. I'd say the ending was worth it. Mostly though I just didn't want to give up on a book by Melissa Marr. I really, really like her "Wicked Lovely" series.
